Watermelon Rind Dosa with Ginger-Coconut Chuteny

Watermelon, watermelon,
On the vine, on the vine,

Green and ripe and juicy,

Green and ripe and juicy

Please be mine,

Please be mine.


Summer and watermelons… Like many (grown up;) kids, I too have fond memories of eating a big crescent of watermelon greedily after playing outside in blazing hot sun, just plain or sprinkled with little salt or dipped in honey. It was dad’s department when it came to buying a huuuuuuuuge watermelon and cut it into big equal sized slices so that we kids don’t get any chance to argue as who got the big chunk of watermelon :) Red and juicy watermelon dotted with slippery and oval black seeds covered with green and white striped skin was one among favourite fruits of mine. Who can forget seed-spitting competition as who would spit the seeds as far as we could and the fear and panic when our elders would tease us saying swallowing these seeds would result in a watermelon plant growing in our tummy:)
When it comes to food, I have one more fond watermelon memory. Once we kids had our fill of watermelon my dad would cut the watermelon into small pieces and store it in refrigerator for late morning snacking and mom would collect all thick skin to make delicious Dosa. My sister and brother preferred sweet watermelon dosa prepared adding grated jaggery ground with rice and white part of watermelon pieces. The spicy version of dosa prepared adding dry red chillies and aromatic cumin and coriander seeds were my and my dad’s favourite.
When Bee and Jai chose Watermelon for this month’s AFAM which is a brainchild of Maheshwari, I knew what I wanted to contribute without any hitch and hesitation or confusion which I usually have whenever I participate in food events. Watermelon Dosa might sound bit unusual to most of readers but you have to try it to know how tasty and delicious it is and how quick and simple it is to make. Unlike many dosa recipes, water melon dosa doesn’t need any fermentation process. Addition of coriander and cumin seeds with dry red chillies takes it to another level of taste. The peel left after eating the red part of watermelon is used to make this dosa. The outermost green part is peeled and only the remaining white part is used to make this dosa. Cut these white parts into small pieces and grind them with rice and other spices to make batter.

Watermelon Rind Dosa with Ginger-Coconut Chuteny

Method:
Soak rice in warm water for at least 2 hours and drain water completely.
Grind coconut, rice, red chillies, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, salt to taste and about 3 cups of chopped watermelon rinds without adding any water. If the batter is too thick add little more watermelon rinds and grind. The batter should be little thinner than Idli batter consistency.
Now add finely chopped onion, green chilli, coriander and curry leaves to the batter and mix well. Keep this aside for about 15 minutes so that all the flavours blend well.
Heat tawa/griddle and pour a ladle full of batter in the centre. Using back of ladle spread this into thick circle.
Cook both the sides in medium-low heat till they turn golden brown by applying little oil or ghee if desired.
Serve hot with Chutney or Sambar or with honey.

I love my plate of watermelon dosa with honey and Ginger-Coconut Chutney. Here is the simple recipe for making Ginger-Coconut Chutney.


Ginger-Coconut Chutney
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: -
Serves: 3-4
Ingredients:
1 cup Fresh/Frozen Coconut
¾ inch Ginger
2 Green Chillies
1 marble sized Tamarind
Salt to taste

Method:
Grind all the above ingredients adding little water (about ¾ cups of water) at a time to a smooth paste and serve with Dosas or Idlies.

Watermelon Rind Dosa with Ginger-Coconut Chuteny



Did You Know?
Every part of a watermelon is edible, even the seeds and rinds.
Watermelon is grown in over 96 countries worldwide.
In China and Japan watermelon is a popular gift to bring a host.
In Israel and Egypt, the sweet taste of watermelon is often paired with the salty taste of feta cheese.
Watermelon is 92% water.
Watermelon's official name is Citrullus lanatus of the botanical family Curcurbitacae and it is a vegetable! It is related to cucumbers, pumpkins and squash.
A watermelon was once thrown at Roman Governor Demosthenes during a political debate. Placing the watermelon upon his head, he thanked the thrower for providing him with a helmet to wear as he fought Philip of Macedonia.
Watermelon is an ideal health food because it doesn't contain any fat or cholesterol, is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C, and contains fiber and potassium.
The first recorded watermelon harvest occurred nearly 5,000 years ago in Egypt.
The word "watermelon" first appeared in the English dictionary in 1615.

  56. Hey Sia.. That looks very yummy. My mouth is watering already I guess. The coconut ginger chutney.. darn, got to invent some method where you can transfer food over internet. Talk about watermelons.. Oh fond memories. We would stand right under the hot sun and eat the water melon slice bought from the street side vendor.. and it was like the sun was never there.. hmm.. sigh..

  59. hee hee, love how you made the chutney into a ball! :) I tend to add too much water all the time so that it'll be easier to grind! grrr..

    i don't suppose watermelon rind has a very strong taste? i'll definitely think twice before dumping the rind now!

    ReplyDelete
  60. WOW! I think I will not be throwing away that rind from the watermelon anymore. This looks delicious!!

    my parents never let us eat watermelon from street sides coz of hygine probs. but i always loved eating roadside chats and sugarcane juice. when ur tummy calls for food everything else dont matter anymore;)

  76. Hi Sia,
    Just wanted to let you know that I made this recipe just this morning and it came out excellent. I had my boyfriend try and guess what was in them, and he had no clue.

    Mine looked almost exactly the same as the ones in your photos. I had trouble spreading the batter, though, due to the onion pieces. Also, is this supposed to be crispy in the middle? I was able to get it crispy on the outside, but it was very soft inside (not quite "uncooked" but soft nonetheless). I'm wondering if this is just due to the nature of the watermelon rind (since I've had a similar experience with cucumber dosa). Oh, and I also soaked the rice overnight, using 1/2 c. iddli rice and 1/2 c. sona masuri rice -- just in case anyone is looking for a variation.

    I also made the ginger-coconut chutney, which was just superb. I plan on serving that many more times in the future. And it paired perfectly with the watermelon dosa.

    Thanks for another wonderful recipe. Will let you know as soon as I try more.

  77. @mahi,
    how have u been girl? good to see u resume blogging:)
    i learnt this recipe from my mom who in turn learnt it from her mom:) its very common recipe in our native as watermelon has very neutral taste and goes well with any other ingredient.

    @prema,
    thanks my dear:) it might sound new to u but as i said to mahi its very common recipe bk in my native. i have not heard abt making pickle with melon rind. now that sounds quite innovative:) do u have any recipe to make pickle?

    @srivalli,
    i can assure u that u will surely like its taste. next time use the watermelon rinds and try making dosas or subji:)

    @kajal,
    u have to post the curry recipe girl. i love all the recipes u share with us:)

    @amanda,
    thank u so much for letting me know dear:) i am really glad to know u both liked this dosa and ginger-coconut chutney:)
    u need to chop onions as finely as possible or you can grind one small onion while grinding the rice and watermelon rinds with other spices. this way you wont find it difficult to spread the dosa:)
    this dosa is meant to me little soft as u spread it thickly. and as u guessed it rightly, other reason is due to water content in watermelon rinds or cucumber(all water based vegetables). if u like a crispy dosa, add little more water to the batter to get any other dosa batter consistancy and spread thinly.
    there r many other coconut based chutney's in archive and sidebar if u want to try:)
    have a wonderful weekend:)
